Thank you Students of St. John Paul II Classical School for this beautiful gift


Our hearts were filled with joy as we opened this gift from our dear friends at St. John Paul II Classical School. The students from the school colored this poster size image of Our Lady of Good Help. Additionally they prayed the Divine Mercy Chaplet for the intentions of all the students, teachers and staff at Notre Dame Middle School.

With a tear in our eyes and a lump in our throats we say THANK YOU for this lovely and spirit filled gift. It is truly beautiful. May we live everyday conscious of what has been given to us by God, the breath that sustains us, food from the earth and the love of family and friends. Thank you friends!!

Please take a moment and read the letter that accompanied the poster.

The poster stands framed and ready to hang in a place of honor in our building.
